Caribbean journalists learn about climate change

By BBN Staff: Representatives from eight Caribbean countries are in Belize this week for a two day training workshop on how to report matters associated with climate change.

The Japan Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (JCCCP) and the United Nations Development Project (UNDP) hosted the workshop at the Ramada Belize City Princess, which gathered more than 30 participants.

Journalists from  Guyana, Saint Lucia, Grenada, Dominica, St. Vincent and Grenadines, Suriname, Jamaica and Belize, gathered to discuss topics such as myths associated with climate change; how to translate the technical jargons associated with climate change into language more easily understood by the general public, and creating linkages between weather stories and climate change.

Journalists also had a practical component, where they went out into south side Belize City and spoke with community members who have already begun to feel the effects of climate change because of the areas they live in.

The workshop coincides with the launch of a national climate change public awareness campaign geared towards educating Belizeans about climate change’s effects, and how each citizen can play a role in the collective effort to mitigate those effects.

The National Climate change Office of the Government of Belize is supporting the public awareness campaign.
